Reports indicate that President Trump may issue an Executive Order that will encourage sweeping discrimination against LGBT people and women. In response to a leaked draft of the order, we have a message for President Trump:

The reported Executive Order is a direct attack on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, everyone living with HIV, women, and all Americans who love liberty.

The immediate public outcry in response to the leaked order confirmed what we already know: people overwhelmingly reject discrimination against LGBT people and don’t want taxpayer money to fund hatred. Bigotry — whether against LGBT people, women, Muslim immigrants or refugees — has no place in our country.

The Administration needs to stand down. Lambda Legal is remaining vigilant and is ready to file suit if this Executive Order is issued.
